I do have to say though, that getting off I-95 has been nice, but slower. We've been on US Rt 17 since Williamston, NC and it just deadended at I-95 about 30 miles from Savannah.
Everyone down here is so polite, it's all m'am this and m'am that
Charleston was quite precious. It's odd, though, that so much of what is venerated in these places are rich white people's houses.
What is it about the rich that we go out of our way to look at their houses? Either new or old, it doesn't matter. The rest of what is venerated is military mythology and nostalgia. odd.
We took the Charleston Harbor Tour. It was so pleasant to sit on this site-seeing boat and be "driven" around the harbor on a sunny, mild afternoon. Charleston is much like Manhattan--a pointy sticky-outy island flanked by two rivers and a large natural harbor. Fort Sumtner is right about where the statue of liberty is. The battery is the battery. Brooklyn is rich white people's homes on the waterfront. The UN is where the major commercial docks are and south street seaport is where the fancy rich white peoples homes are. There is no functional equivalent of the meatpacking district. So sad, the Gullah Tour does not run on Sundays and I had not planned that we would take so long to get to Charleston, so no gullah tour for us.
NB---ooops, I just noticed that I wrote "site-seeing" which it is kind of, but I know that it is more typically called "sight-seeing".
